    Icon tile display sticks (WinXP)

    I have one particular directory in which my icons are always displayed Tiled. I'd like "Details"-mode instead.

    My problem is that I do not seem to be able to change that permanently. When I select Detailed-mode, select another directory and get back to the first one it is back to tiled... Tried customizing, looked at folder-options, deleted Desktop.ini... nothing helps!

    I must be missing something... any clues?

    Windows XP "remembers" folder settings only for a limited number of folders - 400 is the default. You can change this by editing the Registry, be careful when you do so.

    See <post#=252256>post 252256</post#> for a description, and <post#=296548>post 296548</post#> for a good screenshot.
